|The Fred Waring Show - 8 October 1950|
An episode of "The Fred Waring Show". This variety show is a mixed bag. The highlight is the fun and entertaining "Autumn in New York" sequence (sadly with some sprocket-hole damage). The low-point is the entire second-half, which recreates a turn-of-the-century minstrel show. It's embarrassing, but even if I were to ignore the out-dated blackface, it just plain isn't funny. Painfully corny. Then again maybe you'll like it...
